[Chorus]
We need some positive vibes for these rainy days
Let the sun come out keep pushin' these clouds away
We need some positive vibes life's for fun so go and play
Let the sunlight in, brighten up your day

Let the vibes blow like the ocean breeze
Mamma always told me there'd be days like these
Keep your head right, just do as you please
Never interfere with an evil man's schemes
Keep your heart pure, conceive your own dreams
Respect your fellow man, the earth with the trees
The air that we breathe and the highest mountain peak
Bring truth from your soul to your mouth when you speak

No need to get loud .. messin with others, stressin' your brother, it's time to uncover
Time to choose another path you see
Cause the road most traveled's negativity
Put your fist down (fist down), throw your hands in the air
Respect yourself, be somebody who cares
Don't let life get you down, don't feel abused
Keep a positive view unto yourself be true

[Chorus]

Everyday's a new adventure You got to keep what you got
Livin' life in a studio bustin' rhymes in my socks
I got to keep my head up and always do what I feel
Avoidin all the evil and just keeping it real
(I need some positive vibes)
All these situations I keep hearin' about
People dyin' in planes and buildings crumbling down
This world goes round for no apparent reason
People robbin and theavin' just to feel good for the evening
(I need some positive vibes)
What happen' to everybody's peace and love
Throw your drinks the sky, raise your hands up above
Get yo hand out of the gutter and be respectful
We need some positive vibes for these rainy days so let it go
Don't never get it twisted when I'm on this track
D-Loc the kind kid that be kickin' it back
Of the class everyday I was high
Goin to school in 95 easy that how we ride

[chorus]

It's time to leave this rat race track down Babylon
Keep my head straight, keep my family movin' on
Find my own pace, create my own space
Detach my whole scene from this wicked rat race
These two-faced friends, the snakes in the grass
Daddy always told me there'd be men like that
So watch your own back keep your eye on your stash
Don't ever write a check that that ass can't cash

[Chorus]

We need some positive vibes
(Keep on reaching for it)
For these rainy days
(Keep on hoping for it)
Let the sun come out keep pushin' these clouds away
(What we need is, all we have is positive vibes)
We need some positive vibes
(What more can we say to you)
Life's for fun so go out and play
(What more can be said to you)
Let the Sunlight in, brighten up your day
(What we need is, all we have is positive vibes)

    Song Meaning

    "We need some positive vibes for these rainy days Let the sun come out keep push these clouds away"

    basically to me its saying we need to be more positive to others because they might be having a hard life.

    "We need some positive vibes life's for fun so go and play"

    to me this says exactly what it means life is about having fun so go have fun

    "Let the sunlight in, brighten up your day"

    don't live 'hiding in the shadows' and show everyone who you really are

    "Let the vibes blow like the ocean breeze Mamma always told me there'd be days like these"

    keep being positive no matter what happens

    "Keep your head right, just do as you please"

    do what you want don't do what others tell you you have to do

    "Never interfere with an evil man's schemes"

    don't stop someone because YOU think its bad to do it (IMO stuff that is illegal you should definetly call the police about but other than that stuff is what I mean)

    "Keep your heart pure, conceive your own dreams Respect your fellow man, the earth and the trees The air that we breathe and the highest mountain peak"

    don't do anything bad yourself and 'turn you dreams into reality' respect people and their decisions and care for the environment

    "Bring truth from your soul to your mouth when you speak"

    Speak from your heart and don't say anything you'll regret

    "No need to get loud .. messin with others, stressin� your brother, it's time to uncover Time to choose another path you see"

    don't yell and scream, get violent or stress others out with your actions but try something else with your anger

    "Cause the road most traveled is negativity"

    almost everyone uses verbal or phisical violence (IMO which we need to change that)

    "Put your fist down (fist down), throw your hands in the air Respect yourself, be somebody who cares"

    litterally what it says throw your hands in the air could mean dancing/having fun

    "Don't let life get you down, don't feel abused Keep a positive view unto yourself be true"

    don't feel attacked but be positive about who you are and make those feelings about yourself true (Example Think your a great person abd be a great person)

    "Everyday's a new adventure You got to keep what you got Livin' life in a studio bustin' rhymes in my socks"

    everyday is different so make everyone last you a lifetime

    "I got to keep my head up and always do what I feel Avoidin all the evil and just keeping it real"

    keep your head up and feel good about what you got but also be good to others avoid getting into trouble and just be yourself

    "All these situations I keep hearin' about People dyin' in planes and buildings crumbling down This world goes round for no apparent reason People robbin and theavin' just to feel good for the evening"

    no matter what happens around you don't live in the past move on and theres more to life than money and greed

    "What happened to everybody's peace and love"

    pretty much saying that it was better back when there were no Wars or when love was about more than how somebody looked

    "Throw your drinks the sky, raise your hands up above Get yo head out of the gutter and be respectful We need some positive vibes for these rainy days so let it go"

    have fun but also respect those around you and once again be positive

    "Don't never get it twisted when I'm on this track D-Loc the kind kid that be kickin' it back Of the class everyday I was high Goin to school in 95 easy that how we ride"

    don't hold others back from there potential and sometimes you have to look deeper than just what someone first appears to be

    "It's time to leave this rat race chant down Babylon Keep my head straight, keep my family movin' on Find my own place, create my own space Detach my whole scene from this wicked rat race The two-faced friends, the snakes in the grass Daddy always told me there'd be men like that So watch your own back keep your eye on your stacks Don't ever write a check that that ass can't cash"

    its better to be different than the rest then to be like everyone else if their all like "Rats" just keep movin on and stay yourself and if someone betrays you don't get even just ignore them

    "We need some positive vibes (Keep on reaching for it) For these rainy days (Keep on hoping for it) Let the sun come out keep push these clouds away (What we need is, all we have is positive vibes) We need some positive vibes (What more can we say to you) Lies that so forth go out and play (What more can be said to you) Let the Sunlight in, brighten up your day (What we need is, all we have is positive vibes)"

    So all in all stay positive

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
Album art
Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
